Why did you start your first hub? Passion or purpose? What keeps you on Hubpages?
I would like to know how many people started a hub on purpose vs just blogged about there passion and fell into it.
I would say "purpose". As I said in one of my hubs and on my profile, writing helps me to learn. Talking about my first hub, it was a reply to some behaviors, I wasn't heard there where the reply had to be given, so I searched for a place where my voice can be heard. But as I wanted it to be read, I didn't publish it 1st until being sure that I am in the right place. And I was right, until now this hub is the most viewed in my hubs collection and was chosen as a HubNugget.
My very first hub published was a very personal article I wrote for Brainwave the Irish Epilepsy Association. I was introduced to Hubpages through a friend and it has been a mix if honest between Passion and Purpose. I really enjoy writing and wanted to see if I could write on subjects that others would enjoy reading and also to see if it would generated an income long term. As I am moving abroad, I feel it is an ideal opportunity to start this new venture in online writing before I move and learn as much as possible.
@Suzie HQ I'm amazed at your perspective. In fact its similar to mine. I started with a mixed perspective. But I'm thankful for the purpose driven life that allows me to continue this for the benefit of connecting with and helping others.
OMG! I forget the reason I start my first hub. However, hubpages is a nice and friendly place to contact with people from all over the world.
@iefox5 I will do you 1 better. I forgot I started this hub for 3 years. I didn't touch it at all. I think I started with and intention but the passion faded and I forgot about it. I came back when I realized the value of hubpage community

This is my question to l the newbies and veterans here. Everyone has to start from somewhere to succeed. If you are making some dent money here, it's a result of your determination to not give up when things were not going the way you wanted the to. What kept you going? What would you suggest to a...
